Overview

One of South Korea's biggest yearly events with 2.8 million annual attendees, Jinju's Namgang Yudeung (Lantern) Festival brightens the early fall season. In honour of a lantern-lighting custom stemming from a medieval battle against the Japanese, lanterns containing the wishes of the participants are ceremoniously lit and sent floating down the Namgang River through the heart of the city. Larger, more intricate lanterns featuring detailed scenes and characters from both Korean and international artists are exhibited during the week and a half-long celebration while outdoor performances and an impressive fireworks display round out the must-see event.
